Description of Winds of Hope: Healing Devotions for Life's Storms by Rebecca J. Hughes
You never know when disaster will strike. What happens when it does? Victims of trauma are often left feeling hopeless. In many cases, these victims of natural disaster or unexpected life events find themselves in overwhelming situations. They may face the enormous task of rebuilding a home or may be suddenly unemployed. With natural disasters, they may even find themselves completely alone, having lost friends and family members and having no one to turn to for support. In the midst of the disaster, however, a gentle wind of hope softly blows--hope that is built on the understanding and comfort brought through God's Word. Written in a way to address specific and immediate needs of readers, Winds of Hope offers 60 encouraging devotionals that deal with various topics, including peace, security, the higher ways of God, the hope of victory, taking life step-by-step, and much more. Offering key Scripture passages for each biblical concept and truth, shared stories, words of encouragement, and prayers for comfort or understanding, the devotionals in Winds of Hope also give readers the chance to catch a "gentle breeze" through suggested activities and meditations and additional Scripture readings. Through the provision of Scripture and shared life experiences of others, Winds of Hope can help bring healing to those affected by devastating events or circumstances. The content shows evidence that God is a sovereign, faithful, trustworthy, and sufficient companion for the path to restoration and healing.
